Oracle Internet Directory 11gR1 Certified with E-Business Suite

Steven Chan
Senior Director

Oracle E-Business Suite comes with native user authentication and management capabilities out-of-the-box. If you need more-advanced features, it's also possible to integrate it with Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Single Sign-On or Oracle Access Manager, which allows you to link the E-Business Suite with third-party tools like Microsoft Active Directory, Windows Kerberos, and CA Netegrity SiteMinder.   


For details about third-party integration architectures, see:

Oracle Internet Directory is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i, 12.0 and 12.1.  OID is part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 Version, also known as FMW 11g Patchset 6.  Certified E-Business Suite releases are:
  • EBS Release 11i + ATG PH.H RUP 7 and higher
  • EBS Release 12.0.6 and higher
  • EBS Release 12.1.1 and higher

Supported Configurations

Oracle Internet Directory can be integrated with these single sign-on solutions for EBS environments:

  • Oracle Internet Directory (OID) and Directory Integration Platform (DIP) from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 6 ( with Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 ( with an Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i, 12.0.6 or higher or 12.1.x).
  • Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 6 ( with Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 Patchset 2 ( with an Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 12.0.6 or higher or 12.1.x).
  • Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 6 ( with Oracle Access Manager 10g ( with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i or 12.1.x).
  • Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 6 ( with Oracle Single Sign-On Server and Oracle Delegated Administration Services Release 10g ( with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i, 12.0.6 or 12.1.x).
Oracle Access Manager strongly recommended


Oracle has two single sign-on solutions: Oracle Single Sign-On Server (OSSO) and Oracle Access Manager (OAM). Oracle strongly recommends that all new single sign-on implementations use Oracle Access Manager. Oracle Access Manager is the preferred solution going forward, and forms the basis of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g. OSSO is no longer being actively developed and will not be ported to Oracle WebLogic Server.


Platform certifications

Oracle Internet Directory is certified to run on any operating system for which Oracle WebLogic Server 11g is certified. Refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g System Requirements for more details. For information on operating systems supported by Oracle Internet Directory and its components, refer to the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11gR1 certification matrix. Integration with Oracle Internet Directory involves components spanning several different suites of Oracle products. There are no restrictions on which platform any particular component may be installed so long as the platform is supported for that component. References

    When checking EBS certifications in MOS I don't see OID there - only

    Thanks for the blog - very informative.

    Hi, Tony,

    Thanks for the feedback on our blog. Glad to hear that you've found it useful.

    It appears that our Certify database update is still pending. We'll get this certification logged formally very soon. While that administrative task is still pending, please do not hesitate to deploy this OID version into production with your EBS+OAM|SSO environments.



  • Prasad Akkiraju Tuesday, June 25, 2013

    Hi Tony,

    Certify updates are complete for OID Apologies for the delay. Please check MOS and let us know if you have any further questions.



  • Amit Jain Sunday, June 30, 2013

    Hello Steven

    Could you please tell us if this known bug 16402317 is fixed in OID code.

    We re-registered EBS 11i with OID ( and encountered this bug. If its fixed then we can apply this patch and move-on with Go-Live, as its causing serious trouble for us moving forward.

    Hi, Amit,

    I'm sorry that you're encountering issues with this. The patch for this issue is waiting for another issue to be resolved first. We're working on this right now.

    I'd recommend that you log a formal Service Request so that you can be automatically notified when this patch is released.

    I am trying to get a handle on version compatibility for OAM.

    I already have 11Gr2 ( installed (RCU version and OAM

    I find that there is no version of OID that corresponds to the above.

    Can I then use version for OID against a repository that is

  • Amit Jain Thursday, August 22, 2013

    Hello Joseph

    Yes you should be able to use OID with OAM, you have to use correct RCU ( I have just configured the same setup for one of my client.



  • Steven Chan Thursday, August 22, 2013

    Yes, Amit's correct.

    OAM is now certified with EBS. See:

    Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 Certified With E-Business Suite https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/oracle_access_manager_11gr2_patchset

    Remember that certification questions like this can easily be handled by Oracle Support 24x7.

    Hi Steven,

    I just tried to install OID on a database seeded with RCU, but that failed. Component oid1 could not be created. It seems the ODS version in that RCU is, not

    SQL> select COMP_ID,OWNER,VERSION,STATUS from schema_version_registry;





    ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----------
















    Not sure if this is the cause of the OID install failure, but it might be?



  • Steven Chan Wednesday, August 28, 2013

    Hi, Willem,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered an issue with this.

    We can provide general conceptual guidance here, but I'm afraid that this blog isn't the best place to get technical support for specific issues like the one that you're working through.

    Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our Oracle Internet Directory specialists engaged.

    Please feel free to forward your Service Request number to me if it gets stuck in the support process for some reason.



  • guest Wednesday, August 28, 2013

    Hello Willem

    You really need to match OID with RCU to make it work. Which means that if you are using latest OAM, then your IDM database should have as well as seeded schemas.



  • Willem Thursday, August 29, 2013

    Hi Amit,

    Aha, so in the IDM database we need to install both the 'Oracle Access Manager' schema's from RCU and the 'Oracle Internet Directory' schema from RCU I was confused about using more then one RCU on a IDM database. This clarifies, thanks!
